  • Camp Comfort
    may have been related to her in some way Exposed original wood plank sidewalls later covered by asbestos shingles In 1939 when Myron Kline died his widow Cora E Kline and their children Helen Henry Lottie Shoemaker and Frank C Kline inherited his share This is where the transactions grow a bit murky From courthouse records it appears that this little group of families and their heirs occupied this relatively small area known as Camp Comfort all throughout the first half of the 20th century Elwood S Adams and his wife appear to have been the only remaining folks from that time period when in 1955 in a recorded indenture they received sole ownership from Paul E and Myrtle Haas for 4 650 Rear of cottage facing Firehouse Road In 1969 the property was sold to Ernest J Haseney and his wife Carolyn A from College Point N Y for 42 000 In 1978 the Haseneys sold the property to Millard and Judith Mertz of White Haven Pa They in turn sold it to Ali Ihsan Turan of New York in 1984 for 73 000 It was during this ownership that many of the original remaining beautiful tall pine trees were cut down PHOTO 4 Middle rear cottage facing John Street The Residents of Camp Comfort Having spoken with several local long time residents who are able to remember hearing stories from parents and grandparents about the days of Camp Comfort we learned that Three gentlemen came with their families and stayed in tents in the stony field They teased the local children telling them they were gypsies After the early tent period probably the late 19th century through the 1920s the owners of the land built the small cottages and rented them out for the summer The three families rented out all of the cottages save one which their families kept and shared during the rental season One of the cottages was rented each year to a physician and his wife who spent their summers in Camp Comfort Mr Tropea the current owner retains possession of some of the old rental signs from that period Another story is that after the cottages had been built the women who were sisters described as short little old ladies with their white hair tied back arrived early in the springtime in order to clean the cottages and prepare them for the rental season One memory is of the women whitewashing all of the large stones on the property with lime which seems to have been a popular custom of that time The children of a neighboring family looked forward to springtime each year when they were allowed to help the women with this springtime whitewashing ritual What fun they had Original postcard showing Camp Comfort There is a description of a fence with a gate along the front of the cottages Above the gate hung a sign which read Camp Comfort the name these folks had given to their beloved summer vacation
